What are the words we use to describe others? We define them by what they look like or what they have done. If God described us, what would He say?
Truthfully, there is probably little good to say and yet He calls us forgiven, loved, His friend. If we have received Jesus in our lives, we should also see people in the same way. They are defined by Christ’s love, rather than their sin. Onesimus goes from being seen as a slave to being seen as a brother.
How would the way you see and treat people change if you saw things this way?
